"Ridin' the Blues Train"

Colin Alvarez is bursting with a creative level of energy that would dwarf a supernova . . . consider his array of accomplishments over the past three years: Colin produced the new CD you hold in your hands, became a father for the fourth time, left his native state of Georgia to launch a fresh career in Pennsylvania, purchased a new home and is juggling all of this with ease and poise during a worldwide pandemic. Whew! Colin’s uncanny ability to harness this swirling cyclone of activity – and to pull in such a vibrant team of musical talent – and pouring it all into the passionate soul that breathes life into this new music is remarkable. It’s the creative spark and inspiration that carries this CD to the next level – you’ll hear it, and feel it, from the first note to the last. I can say with all sincerity, it’s been a Long Time Coming! - Black Jack Ketchum (WRFG 89.3 FM - Atlanta, GA)
